SDU Crew after some good play in Denver without much to show for it finally gets some results in Rapid at the Rushmore Cup. SDU Crew steamrolled through their bracket games only giving up 2 goals in three games while scoring 21. In those three games they had wins over BH Rapids Burgundy, Sturgis and Magic FC U17.
In the championship they were matched up against Nebraska Select who, like the Crew boys, rolled through the competition in their side of the bracket. The game would prove to be a battle of two very good teams. Both teams would score in the first half and those scores would prove to be the only ones in regulation time. Heading into OT both teams were looking for the other to make a mistake and in the first half of OT both teams would get just that. Crew would strike first off of a defensive mistake and then less than a minute later, the Nebraska team would do the same. The game winner though would come against the run of play and with less than a minute left in OT as a defensive mistake would be put home by Nebraska giving them the championship.
Although the game didn’t go the Crew boys’ way, they played the best soccer of the year in this event and look poised to go to Chicago and hopefully make a run to a regional championship! Good luck boys and go SDU!!
